SMS doesn't like named instances. Either use a standard instance, or try if this workaround helps:

Great, I found the client utility and created the alias but the installation still bombs. The SQL Server Service Manager has the server in it but the are no services shown for it. How do I debug the Alias to ensure it is setup properly ?

Also I am using Windows 2003 R2 Advanced Server if it makes a difference !

Sorry, SQL is not my specialty; you might want to put a pointer to this question in the SQL TA.
